SEATTLE — The FBI’s “Faces of Global Terrorism” ads featuring photos of terrorist suspects will be taken off of area buses in the next few weeks after criticism that the ads promoted stereotypes of Muslims, it was reported Tuesday.

Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., last week wrote a letter to FBI Director Robert Mueller saying the ads would “only serve to exacerbate the disturbing trend of hate crimes against Middle Eastern, South Asian and Muslim-Americans.”

The company that handles King County Metro bus advertising received a request Tuesday afternoon from the Puget Sound Joint Terrorism Task Force that the ads be taken down, King County Metro spokesman Jeff Switzer told the Seattle Times.

According to the newspaper, two different ads, without photos, will remain on billboards, light rail and at Sea-Tac International Airport.

    Maybe they should post photos of all the NON-Muslim terrorists who have blown up Marine barracks, flew planes into tall buildings, invaded and ransacked US embassies, bombed subways in London, attempted to use shoe-bombs and underwear bombs, etc. Let's see all the NON-Muslim terrorists who have been respkbsible for turning the US into a police state. I'd like to see those photos on busses.

    What do you expect from a libtard like Jim McDimwhit anyhow; Dhimmitude is only one goal of the libtards, de-industrialization and multitudes of race based dependents on Government rule and illegal alien seizure of the South West is only the beginning of their goal promoting their world view that we all live in Disney Land.
